What an incredible, inspiring, exhausting day.
Tonight I am in the quiet space of my thoughts, feeling a whole lot of love, gratitude and deep appreciation.
: : For country dreams and for putting in our offer on the land that will someday be our farm. Our farm! We'll know more in a few days but we're beyond hopeful.
: : For being healthy and whole and holding my family close tonight. I will never take this for granted.
: : For a community that shows up in force to help each other, be it cooking a meal, stoking the fire, or nursing someone else's baby. An afternoon of phone calls and emails for a mama and baby in need and I am amazed at the souls that surround me. This is community. Thank you Viroqua mamas for being amazing beyond words and sharing so much of yourselves.
: : For the sweet vignettes (messes?) that my children leave around the house, reminding me always that my house may not be tidy but it's full of creativity, magic, and love.
: : and For the simple pleasure of this glass of wine. Which I daresay I earned today. The dishes can wait until tomorrow.
Goodnight friends. Take care of each other. We're the best thing we've got.
